A Safe Place
The Parish of Prescot takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org.
In July 2019 we adopted a new safeguarding policy for the parish. Read it here in full (PDF).
Arts and music are central to our life and worship at St Mary’s, and we have a thriving traditional, all-age, robed choir. Click here to find out more about our choir.

SERVICES & OTHER EVENTS
Events are temporarily offline, as we are learning to be a different kind of church in challenging times.
From Sunday 26 July there will be a short 10am Eucharist at St Mary’s, with restrictions in place. Click here to read more.
We remain God’s Church, even when when the building is out of use, and we are still the family of God. We remain united in prayer, and clergy and members of the parish are working hard to make sure we all remain in contact in difficult times. If you find you are struggling, please contact us.
